As usual in this time of year, Guía Peñín, which celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year, has put on sale its new edition on 7th October.

Guía Peñin 2015 celebrates its 25th edition with a record number of wines tasted, 10,800, representing a total of 600 additional references in contrast to its 2014 edition.


31% of all samples tasted exceeded 90 Peñín points, while 57% of all wines were between 85 and 90 points.

The Denomination of Origin Rioja was listed as the leader for the amount of wines tasted by Guía Peñín 2015, with almost 12% of all samples scoring points, ahead of D.O. Ribera del Duero and Cava. It it is in fact a wine from the D.O.C Rioja, that has the honour of being rated the best wine in this 2015 edition:

Contador 2012, the Riojan gem from Benjamín Romeo, received 99 Peñín points, the lead rating this year. A red wine that superbly combines nobility, power, fruit and rosted notes.

Likewise, a wine that received 98 Peñín Points was Pazo de Señorans Selección de Añada 2007, which topped the rankings with regards to white wine. An excellent Albariño with great aging potential. Extraordinarily elegant.

Gramona Celler Batlle 2004, with 97 Peñín points, has the title of the Best Cava according to Guía Peñín. A renowned cava, at the level of the best sparkling wines in the world.

Referring to sweet wines, 98 Peñín points were awarded to the impressive Alvear Solera 1830, that was placed at the top of the category. Dense and creamy. Powerful and comprehensive. A piece of history.

We also want to highlight other great ratings from some of the wines on our website: with 97 points, Finca el Bosque 2011, with 96 points, Alto Moncayo 2011, or the spectacular 95 Peñín points Fino La Ina, which is a fantastic sherry at the top of the list of best value-for-money wines in Spain.
